Found 17th Mar 2010Made hot 17th Mar 2010
ASDA now have these extra special rib eye steak burgers in their 4 packs for £3 range, or £1 each.
I stocked up on them a couple of weeks ago when they were £1.12 a pack reduced from £2 or so.
You get 2 burgers in a pack, and they are the best frozen burgers I have ever had, and I am a right fussy bugger.
Made from Irish rib eye steak.

Looks tasty!

Nice one, thanks.

Awesome burgers. Got a stack of them in me freezer.

Grabbed 3 packs and some chips, none too shabby for 3 quid.

Best frozen burgers I've had are from my local butcher at 50p each.
These sound good though.

That is one thing that puts me off burgers normally. I have gone through maybe 6 or 7 packs of these in the last year or so, and not found any gristle/bone yet.
They also taste of steak, which is a nice change for a beefburger. :-D

When does the 4 for £3 end as was in asda today and seen someone taking all the signage down.

Of course it looks tasty, unfortunately the image is a very poor representation of the actual thing you get! I wonder if you would still say it's tasty if the image depicts the state the cows lived in?

Let's assume that these are quarter pounders containing 85% meat, this would equate roughly to £4/kilo, which is pretty cheap, and a hot deal for people who are into this sort of thing ("i don't care where it came from, it's just a lump of meat")

But I reckon for another quid you can buy 750grams of decent quality beef mince from your local butcher, mix it with some bacon, onions, rusk, salt, pepper and a splash of wine, and you will get burgers that are miles better. With the added advantages that they are fresh, you know exactly what's inside, and best of all you can ask your butcher where the meat came from! :thumbsup:

ffs the chicken lot are on to the beef offers now.

Bang on! ..so true & so easy to make a good basic burger,
(yes these are a great deal though)

Nowadays it is very difficult to find a local butcher. The one near us has become a dry cleaner, (run by different people)!

95% rib eye steak. £4.41 per kilo. (at £1 a pack) £3.30 per kilo when you buy four packs.
You obviously know nothing about meat. Rib eye steak mince is so much better quality than the beef mince from a butchers.
I think you would have a point if it was the normal burgers you were commenting on, these are not.
For what it's worth to you I buy a lot of meat from my local butchers, but not at 85p for a 3oz burger that tastes all slimy when cooked (like a cheap burger)
I will buy these at 37.5p each for 4oz any day of the week.

Also, if it puts your mind at rest it says on the packet "from specially selected herds reared naturally on farms throughout Ireland"

I have to agree that the pic is misrepresentation. You only get the lovely looking burgers, and not the roasted vegetables that the pack picture suggests :whistling:

The Rib eye burgers are good,,,,

My favourite are the Asda Extra Special "Ultimate Big Eat Burgers" > (not in the offer, but worth a purchase!)

I know little about meat. Exactly how much better quality is it?

In my personal opinion, the rib eye is the best cut of meat on a cow.
I like a rib eye steak much more than a fillet (though a fillet is very tender, it lacks a little flavour).
Normal mince tends to be flank, neck, shank or shin - the bits that the butcher finds difficult to sell.
I do buy mince on occasion to make cottage pie or lasagne, but I am a bit more fussy when it comes to burgers.

Yes, jonboy32 we should be fussy when it comes to burgers, the cornerstone of any nutritious diet (pulp fiction)

I humbly kneel down and beg forgiveness :-D

"You obviously know nothing about meat." I love it when people confidently come up with these kind of statements on people they never met

I don't pretend I'm a beef expert, but I know enough to tell you that the cut is half the story. The breed and feed have a lot of influence, and also how long it has been hung.

In your sweeping statement you forget that at a decent butcher you can get any cut you want minced, and I would choose a well hung piece of good quality beef skirt over your average Asda/Tesco rib eye for my burgers.

I think alot of people forget that if you've got your own MEAT mincer (like wot I have) then you tend to mince better quality meat from the start as you choose, & grind your own meat cut for cooking purposes, even cheap cuts homemade fresh (as possible in a world of frozen hanging cadavers) brings out the taste as you are likely to use fresh ingredients instead of dried herbs etc.

(though on that note there are some damn fine herby type seasonings inna bottle out there)
Will try some of these, or rather sneak em past the wife as we have 3 freezers full of meat typically.
..and a pack of oven chips!

stuff that for a game of soldiers. If I'm having burgers, then almost by definition it's because I can't be arsed to cook anything which involves effort.

It's getting closeish to bbq season...might have to stock up!

It's none of those, but it's a forum! Imagine this post with comments like "good discount"..."dirt cheap"..."ditto"..."indeed". Do we gain anything? Do we learn anything? I didn't say it's not cheap, and if you like it, BUY IT!

Ok, imagine someone posts a deal for a cheap mattress, and people start commenting that that particular mattress is very uncomfortable and will give you back problems...would you also ask them to stop moaning?

It's a burger, but it's still meat from a cow, just like a steak.

I totally agree with you there.
But if you asked your local butcher to mince a couple of rib eye steaks for you, then it would come to a lot more than 75p for two burgers, I posted this deal as it is very good value for the type of meat used.
I like a bit of skirt myself, but I tend to slow cook it with a bit of red wine and carrots/onions- it seems to be a bit tough with quick cooking. Do you find burgers with minced skirt tender enough?

My thoughts exactly!

My local butchers shut down due to ASDA being built. So I will try them anyway.

Very true, there's no arguing that it's a hot deal for rib-eye burgers. I was simply trying to raise some awareness that making your own burgers shouldn't be much more expensive than this, and you have the added advantages of knowing where your food comes from. Having said that, if this offer tempts some people to shift away from the basic burger crap they normally buy, then it has served a good purpose

I think the mincing process tenderises the skirt by breaking up all the muscle tissue. And by the way, I mentioned skirt because it's a relatively cheap cut which is affordable to most people out there.

Oh Burger!:x

Not available in my store priced up and scanned at £1.02 (even though its on the website)
